NEW LONDON, Conn.--Sophomore All-American Nate Giorgio is ranked first nationally at 125 pounds in the most recent national rankings.

Giorgio is 18-4 on the season, 15-4 at 133 pounds with three pins and 3-0 at 125 pounds, a weight he just started wrestling at last week.

Last year, he placed fourth at 125 pounds to earn All-America honors at the NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships.

He was named the Most Outstanding Wrestler and the Rookie of the Year at the New England Wrestling Association (NEWA) Championships as he won the 125 pound weight class by winning all five matches a year ago.

Giorgio became the first Coast Guard wrestler to earn All-America honors since Chris Fertig in 2001.
